Rivers North Fishing Report

Ragn Cajun

May 5th, 2013

An extreme amount of water in a short period of time, that’s what has transpired as of lately here across the U.P..  Quite possibly the highest water I have ever seen in rivers has been present as of lately due to a quick melt off of our heavy snow pack.  Large scale flooding has occurred in many areas which has caused some highways even to be closed due to concerns.  Nearly all rivers are running at a very high flow rate as of right now, although they now have been dropping for a few days now.   But even with decreased flows from peak runoff,  I would rate fishing nothing short of challenging.  There are plenty of Steelhead currently around, but current conditions are definitely in the Steelhead’s favor.  Regardless, the diligent angler who can present a fly properly in these conditions will be rewarded with some nice opportunities.
